    2014 has been an exciting year thus far for Alfresco. Our developer Community continues to expand, we’ve brought great new partners into the fold, and we are incredibly honored to have been selected by some very prestigious new customers. Even better, our visionary product innovation at the intersection of business-critical content, process and collaboration continues at breakneck speed. As a result, Alfresco is on a growth trajectory that is triple the growth rate of the ECM industry overall1, and the company is growing more than 30 percent annually. I couldn’t be happier and hope you…

    I built a very successful marketing career based on a three-word mission statement that I picked up from Chris Greendale, back when I was a product marketer at Ingres.  Chris always said that marketing exists to make sales easier. I loved those three words.  I embraced that simple concept.  I made it my reductionist mission statement.  I taught it to every marketer I knew.  I loved it because it just made so much sense — if you derived a startup from scratch you’d first hire a developer and then salesperson.  Only after you had a bunch of salespeople would you then hire…

  • Mobile Device Security: Tackling the Risks

    CMS Report

    22 Aug 2014 | 7:11 am
    Mobile devices with their large data capacities, always on capabilities, and global communications access, can represent both a business applications’ dream and a business risk nightmare. For those in the security industry, the focus is mainly on deploying “solutions” to provide protection. However, we are now at one of those key points of change which happen perhaps once in a generation, and that demand a new way of looking at things.

    I’m a big fan of software-as-a-service (SaaS) metrics.  I’ve authored very deep posts on SaaS renewals rates and customer acquisition costs.  I also routinely point readers to other great posts on the topic, including: David Skok’s excellent posts on SaaS metrics Bessemer’s great articles on cloud computing, the CAC ratio, and more recently 30 Questions every SaaS leaders should be able to answer.

  • You Can’t Analyze Churn by Analyzing Churn

    26 Jul 2014 | 10:05 am
    One thing that amazes me is when I hear people talk about how they analyze churn in a cloud, software as a service (SaaS), or other recurring revenue business. You hear things like: “17% of our churn comes from emerging small business (ESB) segment, which is normal because small businesses are inherently unstable.” “22% of our churn comes from companies in the $1B+ revenue range, indicating that we may have a problem meeting enterprise needs.” “40% of the customers in the residential mortgage business churned, indicating there is something wrong our product for…

    While driver-based planning is a bit of an old buzzword (the first two Google hits date to 2009 and 2011 respectively), I am nevertheless a huge fan of driver-based planning not because the concept was sexy back in the day, but because it’s incredibly useful.  In this post, I’ll explain why. When I talk to finance people, I tend to see two different definitions of driver-based planning: Heavy in detail, one where you build a pretty complete bottom-up budget for an organization and play around with certain drivers, typically with a strong bias towards what they have…

    In 2009, I wrote a blog post entitled, “Building a Stronger Open Source Product”. I used that post to share the philosophy behind Alfresco Community Edition, and to provide guidelines for when a feature of Alfresco is made freely-available and when it is paid-only. Alfresco has evolved significantly since that time. We added one SaaS offering and are working on another, we published mobile apps and SDK’s for both iOS and Android, and we released an enterprise version of Activiti. At Alfresco Summit we will be discussing our release of Alfresco 5.0. That’s a lot of change in the last…

When we get something else, reactions can range from mild disappointment to utter frustration. Shoppers take their business elsewhere. Click. Click. Gone. This phenomenon has spilled over to B2B marketing, where business buyers expect the same sort of shopping experience that they have in their personal lives. Is that unreasonable?

  • The Problem with BYOD Stipends and What's Next for BYOD Costs

    Rick Delgado
    15 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    Companies have plenty of reasons to make bring your own device (BYOD) policies a part of their businesses. One of the main attractions, and a primary reason for adopting BYOD in the first place, is how using a personal device makes employees more productive both in the workplace and at home. Another consequence of using BYOD is that employees are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs. But with these benefits also comes the concern over BYOD cost. BYOD’s most vocal proponents say the policy ends up saving businesses money in the long run, but its critics maintain that bring your own…

    Cloud computing, on a personal or business level, hasn’t been around for long. 2010 and 2011 were banner years for the implementation of cloud. There was some movement in the industry before that, but 2010 and especially 2011 were when things really started to take off. With the capabilities provided by the internet combined with the technology device revolution, the need for and want of cloud computing came to fruition. For big data especially, cloud computing has been extremely important in making big data a household name. Whether it’s been through IBM, Google, or Amazon Elastic…

    12 Aug 2014 | 6:33 am
    If there’s one thing we as marketers have to admit we’re guilty of at times, it’s the use of buzzwords. Especially in the CMS world, acronyms (WCM, CXM, DXM) abound, and the latest terminology can feel like nothing more than the current fad. It’s true, the industry has a terminology overload, but it’s for this reason especially that, when they come around, game-changing concepts need to be explored and identified. Content-as-a-Service, or CaaS, is one such game-changer.

    Ringo Starr is a genius. It’s true. In terms of networking and surrounding yourself with talented thought leaders, Ringo is in a league all by himself.

  • Answering the impossible: How much time will content migration take?

    10 Jun 2014 | 5:00 am
    Content migration is usually the part of a web development project that is most underestimated.  It's also one that typically causes launch delays.  It is best to try to assess how long your content will take you to migrate earlier in your process and put in place a game plan for how you will do it.  Doing some quick calculations may make you realize you've underestimated the effort it will take and force you to re-evaluate your plan for when you will start it and how you will execute it. First, it’s important to understand why content migration is almost always grossly…

    An old timer like myself couldn't help but be filled with trepidation when it was revealed I'd be acting as the company guinea pig to give cloud based development a viability road test on my latest project. No matter how cool I played it, the momentary panic at the thought of working without the tried and tested 'REAL' software apps installed on my macbook, must have been visible on my face.

  • When to use $query->fetchAll() (hint: it's optional)

    Mark Pavlitski
    11 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Something that has come up on one of our projects recently is when to use fetchAll() or equivalents like fetchAllAssoc(). When writing a db_query() or db_select() query, you don't always need to use $query->fetchAll() or $query->fetchAllAssoc() to retrieve the result set; it's optional. Database queries in Drupal 7 are iterator objects, so you can treat them like an array and loop over the results with foreach(). If you're going to do any processing on the results, it'll be quicker and use much less memory this way. So for example, this will still work, note the lack of fetchAll():…

The approaches, scientific, administrative management, behavioral are useful in different circumstances, but it is difficult to be sure which one is right in a given situation. In view of this, it is considered that the newer systems and contingency approaches may provide a more complete integrated approach to the problems of management.Thinking about management with knowledge of the systems approach can help to postulate conceptually the interrelationship of apparently separate and even contradictory ideas underlying…
